I don't like the idea of anything that shoots balls.

You should take that cannon to Mammoth (or Squaw) for the 4th of Julyyahoo.gif

There's nothing in the photo to provide any scale, but that cornice is humongous.  The rock wall in the center of the photos is probably fifteen feet high at least.  I have no idea how big that drop would be right now.

 

I'm pretty sure I've never seen it that big in 40+ years of skiing here.

My sister took a cross country road trip  in early September and got this shot of Corbet's when they visited JH.  Not really skiable at the moment.

I'd hit it (with a climbing harness and some self belay devices)

There are some more summer Corbets pictures at this guy's site:

He has photos from 2009, and there are snow patches that look just like the one's in Trek's sister's pic.

Here's an interesting view of Corbet's
